The asking price for an award-winning 22-bedroom 'green' hotel in Northumberland has been reduced.

Business property advisor, Christie & Co, confirmed the price drop for the exceptional Battlesteads Hotel & Restaurant, now available for £2.1 million.

Located in Wark, this belvedere nestled inside a seventeenth-century sandstone building has been under the management of Richard and Dee Slade for nearly two decades.

Richard Slade said: “Dee and I are always looking at new ways to save energy and running costs and maintain our lowest possible carbon footprint without compromising on our product, customer service, or guest experience."

The establishment garnered success and respect, amassing a total of 27 regional and national awards under their expert management.

The hotel received acclaim for its innovative green business model and multitude of eco-features ingrained throughout its estate.

The list of its recent accolades includes the North East Green Business of the Year 2021, awarded by the Chamber of Commerce and the Good Hotel Guide – Editor’s Choice Award 2018.

It also received the title of Hotel of the Year 2018 by North East England Tourism, the Visit England Sustainable Tourism Gold Award 2017, along with the AA Green Hotel of the year 2016.

The estate holds three Catey’s Awards as well.

Mark Worley, director in Christie & Co’s North Hotel team is handling the sale.

He said: "As well as being a highly regarded and popular business, Battlesteads is also a very efficient, self-sustaining, and innovative business powered by solar energy and a biomass boiler. 

"Much of the produce used within the hotel’s kitchen - including fruit, vegetables, and herbs - is grown on-site. All of this helps massively when it comes to cutting costs and generating excellent profits, making this an excellent opportunity for a new owner.”

The Battlesteads Hotel offers a host of amenities with 22 bedrooms, five luxurious lodges, a restaurant, a bar, a dining conservatory, and an expansive heated patio and beer garden.

Further attractions include an in-house smokery and a recognised observatory, accredited with ‘Dark Sky Discovery Site’ status.

This takes full advantage of the hotel's idyllic placement in Northumberland's Dark Skies Park.
